BuildILLINOIS.com was created and developed by the Chicagoland Construction Education & Training Foundation, which is a subsidiary of the Associated General Contractors of America's Chicago area chapter (Chicagoland AGC).  The goal of BuildILLINOIS is to educate our students on the benefits of choosing a career in construction.

The purpose of the Chicagoland Construction Education & Training Foundation is to promote education and training opportunities for the building industry.  The Chicagoland AGC was formed as a result of a merge between the Builders Association and the Fox Valley AGC in January 2018. It serves its members through its resources regarding labor, safety, education, and government relations.
